Chesney’s Mom to Meet the Eagles

In between his own tour stops in Atlanta and Detroit, Kenny Chesney will spend the Fourth of July with his mother … and the Eagles. The classic rock band plays Knoxville, Tenn., on July 4. “My mother is the biggest Eagles fan in the whole world,” Chesney said, “and I told her if they ever came near us, we were going. Flat-out, that’s it … no matter what!” He has also arranged for his mother to meet the band backstage. “My mom, when I was growing up, had the best attitude and worked so hard to make sure my sister and I had everything. This is one of those times where I can give her something back, one of those things you’d never in a million years think would ever happen … and truthfully, I don’t know who’s more excited, her or me!” 07/03/02
